I usually try to do a gratitude post on Fridays... things that I've noticed and appreciated during the week. But with the earthquake in Haiti... wow. How can I even begin? During last night's prayers with my children, we thanked God for such simple things as food and water and a roof over our heads that wasn't falling down, and for knowing all of us were safe and in the same place.
It's grim and overwhelmingly sad to turn on the TV or the internet.
So instead of my usual, I'm passing on something that showed up in my email today from someone in one of my writing groups. It made me laugh on this bleak morning. I hope it makes you laugh too!
